Toronto is blessed to have a pretty thriving design scene and as the largest metropolitan centre in Canada, it’s fair to say that Toronto is the design capital of the county as well. Our list is a compilation of stores we visit frequently and stores that inspire us. From the mega-retailers to the independent neighbourhood shops, great design comes in all sorts of packages and price points. While this list is by no means exhaustive due to how many excellent furniture store choices we have to choose from, we kept it compact, like the apartments so many of us live in. CovetED presents to you our the top furniture stores in Toronto in 2020, in no particular order.
1. Classico Roma Furniture

3. Trianon Design Ltd
With opulently upholstered furniture and unique accessories rooted in 18th-century Europe, Trianon Design has a decidedly different feel than many of its King East neighbours. The brainchild of Bernard Le Corre and interior designer Lesley Macmillan is full of playful vignettes arranged with original antiques and custom pieces: think tree-shaped French paper chandeliers, Lucite mirrors from Italy and hand-finished tables with antique iron panels from France. Leather armchairs from the 30s and 40s are similarly rich with character.
